    I have been working at TransDigm full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The guys know how to make money, and the CEO is among the highest paid. The company is expanding fast, acquiring new facilities, generating more cash. It is happening fast. Stock prices are climbing.

    Cons

    From the inside, it is a gloomy picture with layoffs and long hours for salaried employees. Company president acts like a dictator with absolute authority, hiring and firing on minutes notice. My way or the highway makes employees feel demotivated and unappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with your plans. Show appreciation and some respect to employees. A company president should not be a dictator and act like a narcissist. Stop underlying threats of terminating more employees.

    Pros

    There are nice co-workers at the corporate office and other division offices and locations. Decent pay and benefits. Pretty good holidays.

    Cons

    Corporate management is full of loud, crass, foul, chauvinistic, classless people. You have to play the boy's club game to fit in. Your life will be theirs and not yours anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They would be too stubborn to heed any advice from some lowly employee.

    I worked at TransDigm

    Pros

    Great pay
    Competent colleagues and management
    Strong work ethics
    Flexible hours (for salary)
    Financially sound and stable

    Cons

    Ruthless in layoffs (3 layoffs in 12 months)
    Corporate office dictates how things are done in individual divisions
    Constantly changing priorities making it difficult for employees to focus on their work (partly due to resource constraints)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to seek new opportunities. Need to separate between Sales & Product Management so that the focus is there between getting new business as well as satisfying current customers. Get rid of the month-end 'meet the sales target' mentality. If we want to improve, we should continue to do that every week, not just during the last week of the fiscal month. All in all - great job!

    Good pay & benefits, but no work/life balance!

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, mostly good people who want to do a good job.

    Cons

    Biggest focus is on making the "numbers" every month and not accepting that the "numbers" might not be possible. Maximum overtime, squeezing suppliers, attempting to force suppliers to work overtime and weekends - all in an attempt to make the "numbers." Not much work/life balance. Union environment also hampers getting the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constantly pushing people is going to burn them out. Constantly pushing suppliers is going to eventually sour the relationship - they are going to start seeking out other customers.
